Mike Bordick's first (and best) game as a Met as he hits a HR in his first Met at-bat. Rick White also made his Met debut in this game and earned the win in relief thanks to a bases-loaded walk for Lenny Harris which broke a tie in the 8th. Exciting game!

Went to this game. Turned out to be the first game that Mike Bordick played for the Mets, and he hit a HR his first at-bat that was about 4 or 5 sections over from us (we sat on the 3rd base side of the field). Also Piazza hit a moon shot, Jim Edmonds made a great catch, Lenny Harris had a pinch hit single to win the game for the Mets. Good stuff.

The Piazza HR was amazing, it just went up and up and up and up. There were like 3 or 4 HRs that day but Big Mike's was just unbelievable.

This was the first game I took my wife and kids to. My oldest son was 5 and the little guy was 2. Shea was filled with electricity that day, with 55,000 people chanting M-V-P whenever Piazza came up. He sure looked like an MVP that day, with a solo HR and a bases-loaded single. Mike Bordick not only homered in his 1st AB for the Mets, it was on the First Pitch of the AB!

Mike Piazza hit a monster home run one of the farthest ever hit at Shea! Mike Bordick "his first pitch as a Met and gone", "Mike Bordick welcome to New York" The words of the Fox announcers. This was a great. It was also the 1st major league game I ever went to. I was 7 then and just becoming a Met fan.

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.
